The Prayer of the Little Bird

"Dear God,
I don't know how to pray by myself
very well,
but will You please
protect my little nest from wind and rain?
Put a great deal of dew on the flowers,
many seeds in my way.
Make Your blue very high,
Your branches lissom;
let Your kind light stay late in the sky
and set my heart brimming with such music
that I must sing, sing, sing...
Please, Lord."

Carmen Bernos de Gasztold
Prayers from the Ark

Lord. The storm is pressing in close to our nest. I have lost my song... please, give me the song I need to sing to You in this moment. Help me to see that our nest is in the Ark. Please help me to see the Ark. Amen.

An Ark is a great image to hold--involves community wrapped in protection.

I've read this many times since you posted it. It speaks volumes to me but what, I can't put it into words. It's so much like my heart's prayer at the moment.

Thank you.
